‘Tweenagers’ in Trinidad and Tobago received their Secondary Entrance Examination results today. It’s an exciting time for many, however admittedly, some may not have been as successful as hoped. Caribbean entertainer, Bunji Garlin who doubles up as a father of a beautiful 7 -year-old girl named Syri, shared some sharp words in the aftermath of the SEA results today, reminding parents of their roles as nurturers to the youth.

“This is like a rite of passage. CONGRATZ to all those students that passed their exams. A serious truth, THERE ARE DELINQUENT KIDS YES, BUT A LOT MORE KIDS COULD’VE PASSED THEIR EXAMS IF THEIR PARENTS WEREN’T ALL ABOUT THE CLUB LIFE. A hard fact we fail to accept, once you bring a child into this world it is no longer about us. It is about them. Everything we do, in one way or the next affects them. Again, to the students and parents that worked hard, CONGRATZ.  To those that worked hard but missed the moment CONGRATZ still. Slip ups happen. Those parents that saw their kids on a failing road and did nothing to try to pull them back you can still try alternative avenues from here on.”

– Bunji Garlin

In Trinidad and Tobago, while entertainment and nightlife may often time seem the order of the day, the general rule of thumb that acquiring a sound education is key to a successful life, remains engraved in the social psyche of the population. Garlin’s words have resonated strongly in a society that has seen a noted upsurge in violence and homicides over the past ten years. For Bunji Garlin and his wife, their daughter’s development is priority. Mom and wife, Fay-Ann Lyons-Alvarez, in a chat with EBUZTT.COM indicated that her daughter’s development has proven to be a strong factor in her personal development even. She said while people would often notice a change in the way she speaks, that has been influenced by all that she is learning amid her daughter’s academic and social development.

EBUZZTT.COM congratulates all SEA students and all youths in general who are striving for positive and meaningful career paths. We too, urge parents to devote their time and energy into the growth and positive upbringing of their children.
